Natural Sciences

The Natural Sciences School provides education for three types of students: 1) majors who want to obtain the Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, or Mathematics with an emphasis in Computer Science; 2) all students, as part of their liberal arts education; and 3) secondary education students who are focusing on one of the disciplines mentioned above.

As a result of the increasingly important role of science and technology in society, the course offerings of the Natural Sciences School are a vital part of the liberal arts education. General Education courses in the Natural Sciences School are designed to relate basic principles of science in nature and to see the impact of technology on society, emphasizing the rationale of the scientific method, analytical reasoning, and computational analysis.

The Natural Sciences School offers five majors: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science.  Graduates will be able to attend graduate schools or related professional schools (e.g., medical, dental, pharmacy, allied health schools), to work in industry, or to prepare for other fields (e.g., teaching, management, law).
